Recent Projects

It is very rewarding to see our clients achieve their goal of becoming a published author. Generally it does not happen overnight, but when it does happen it is all the more satisfying. Opening the package you know contains your published book, you take it out and stare at it as if you cannot believe it is real. While E-books are essential in our digital, interconnected world, there is something special about the shape, weight and smell of an actual book.

At LLOYD MOSS publishing, we take on a variety of projects, genres and needs. It keeps us on our toes! In some projects, we provide editing services only whilst in others we provide the complete package of editing and self-publishing. Even if we are not directly involved in publishing our client's book, we tend to stick around and continue to be involved and available to answer any questions and provide advice, as needed. 

Our current work in progress includes:

  • Having completed the copyediting of the first book in a historical fiction trilogy, now moving on to copyediting the second book as well as helping our client prepare submissions to agents and publishers. 

  • Editing and arranging publication of a lyrical folk tale with the most exquisite drawings by the author/illustrator. 

  • Copyediting a novel set in a men's prison with a protagonist trying to survive the violent gangs and predatory inmates. 

  • Editing and preparing a non-fiction book for publication on the topic of on eating for health and vitality for a naturopath client.

  • Developmental and copyediting a 60,000 word manuscript of the author's first novel in the genre of science fiction. 

Listed hereunder are brief descriptions of some of our recent projects.

e-book Hopkins - Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey cover.jpg

'Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey'
by June Hopkins

A Collection of Short Stories 

Copyedited and Published by LLOYD MOSS publishing

The stories, characters and situations in this collection are eclectic, stimulating and uplifting. The title "Everybody's Life is a Hero's Journey" reflects June's belief that, when we look closely, no lives are ordinary. We are all on the hero's path even though some of us stray off it from time to time. The thread loosely connecting the different stories is an underlying message about overcoming adversity in one situation or another.

Most of June's short stories are for adult readers but the children have not been forgotten. June has included a few of the delightful stories she has written for children.

Paperback cover - Ludwig Leichhardt - 26.5_edited.jpg

'Ludwig Leichhardt'
By Darcy Lloyd

The Man. The Legend.

Copyedited and Published by LLOYD MOSS publishing

To understand Leichhardt, the man, we must begin with Ludwig, the boy.  His father was highly influential and encouraged Ludwig to read, to be diligent, to love nature and to value knowledge above all things. 

Leaving everything he loved behind, the young Leichhardt embarks alone for the colony of New South Wales. In this book, we follow his progress, setbacks, disputes and triumphs in his successful first expedition and his failed second expedition. 

What happened to the man they called "the Doctor"? He and his men and animals disappeared into the unknown continent, leaving barely a trace. Their fate became one of the great unsolved mysteries of European settlement of Terra Australis.  

This enthralling new book on Leichhardt reveals him to be a visionary, a man so single-minded and determined that he would allow nothing to stand in his way of realising his great plan.
